Hello Kristine, A Breakwater Vet With The Pics To Prove It!

I graduated from Elon College (now Elon University) with a degree in Elementary Education. I was a fourth grade teacher for three years in North Carolina. When I moved to Delaware with my husband, I had a career change and worked with an investment management company for 15 years until I joined Breakwater at the beginning in 2015. I’m married with three sons. I’m a typical suburban mom that enjoys going out to dinner (with and without the boys) and gardening.

Meet Suzanne, the longest standing Breakwater lady has some inside info and tips and tricks of mastering life at Breakwater!

It’s hard to believe that I am coming up on 7 years with breakwater. To have been with the company from the very beginning and to see where we are now has been a remarkable journey.  From 4 people to 47; from a small, 3rd floor office (sometimes with no heat or AC) to a big beautiful space with real furniture in the conference rooms (RIP Lee’s grandmother’s dining room table and chairs) and from a list of clients that could all fit on a single wipe board to well, where we are now! And even more surprising is that I still have most of the same clients that I’ve had from very early on. My non-profits do amazing work and I am honored to be a part of helping them to succeed. I am continually inspired by our culture of helping and supporting each other so in that spirit, I’m passing along some insights 🙂

Your financial statements are trying to tell you something! Do you speak their language?

I grew up in Quebec so my first language is French. (You might not know that since I have no accent at all.) Though we’ve been married more than 15 years, my husband still doesn’t understand what I’m saying when I speak French to our boys (even when we’re talking about him). He’s missing out on a lot of very interesting information!
